timlaman Photo by @TimLaman on assignment with NatGeo Expeditions in Antarctica. A blowing and lunging Fin Whale on a windy day off Elephant Island. As the wind blew 45 knots, we watched from our ship as literally dozens of Fin Whales, the second largest whale species in the world (after the Blue), fed on krill in these rich waters. Fin whales are easily recognized by the color of their lower jaw, which is white only on the right side. #whale, #Antarctica, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, see more shots from this expedition @TimLaman. 7d

timlaman Photo by @TimLaman on assignment with NatGeo Expeditions in Antarctica. As we enter the Weddell Sea on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula, we are greeted by many large tabular icebergs like this one. These large bergs have broken off from large ice shelves on the Antarctic coast and have impressive sheer faces. #ice, #iceberg, #Antarctica, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, see more shots from this expedition @TimLaman. 1w

It’s awesome to be in this spectacular, pristine part of the world. #ice, #glacier, #Antarctica, #sunset, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, see more shots from this expedition @TimLaman. 2w

timlaman Photo by @TimLaman on assignment with NatGeo Expeditions in Antarctica. I caught a Gentoo Penguin in mid leap as it came in toward shore at a nesting colony on the Antarctica Peninsula at a place called Neko Harbor. This behavior, which is called “porpoising” is how these penguins grab a breath of air while swimming full speed without slowing down. #Antarctica, #Penguin, #bird, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, see more shots from this expedition @TimLaman. 2w

timlaman Photo by @TimLaman on assignment with NatGeo Expeditions in Antarctica. A Chinstrap Penguin greets us at the South Shetland Islands on our first landing in Antarctica. Actually it was rubbing its face with its small yet very powerful wings, which are useless for flying of course, but are used to “fly” underwater with amazing speed. #Antarctica, #Penguin, #bird, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, See more from this expedition @TimLaman. 3w

timlaman Photo by @TimLaman on assignment with NatGeo Expeditions in Antarctica. A flock of Cape Petrels follows our ship as we approach the South Shetland Islands off the tip of Antarctica. Using a slow shutter speed, I tracked the birds as they swooped near the rough seas to capture this shot. #Antarctica, #bird, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, @TimLaman. 3w

timlaman Photo by @TimLaman on assignment with NatGeo Expeditions in Antarctica. This Black-browed Albatross flew near our ship as we emerged from the Beagle Channel and headed to the Drake Passage just before sunset. Black-browed are one of the more common, medium sized Albatrosses, at up to a 2.5 m wingspan. #Antarctica, #bird, #albatross, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, @TimLaman. 3w

timlaman @TimLaman in action shooting a stork in flight and crocodiles on sandbars from a helicopter in Australia. See the resulting photos in recent posts. This specatacular gallery forest along the Archer river is in the @AustralianWildlifeConservancy sanctuary called Piccaninny Plains in the #CapeYork peninsula. Shot on assignment for @NatGeo with Drew Fulton (@FilmingFlorida). You can just make out a small freshwater crocodile on the sandbar to the left side of the last frame. #helicopter, #Queensland, #CapeYork, #Australia, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative. 1mon

timlaman @Tim Laman photo of sunrise over Green Swamp in the @AustralianWildlifeConservancy Piccaninny Plains Sanctuary. This wetland is the kind of water source and refuge that makes this sanctuary so important for wildlife in the central Cape York Peninsula, especially in the dry season when water is in short supply. Aerial from a helicopter. I flew from our camp to this site with pilot Bungie in the pre-dawn and waited for the sun to pop over the horizon. #sunrise, #Queensland, #CapeYork, #Australia, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative. 1mon
